Concept

The enforced shape of the "Alpha" set, which fits snugly into the hand, is inspired by a copper beaker from the Middle Ages on show at the MAK/Vienna. The copper beaker was, in turn, inspired by Islamic shapes. The "Alpha Beaker" was very much a product of the 1950s, stackable and ideal for young families who need products that are both elegant and practical.
